France’s Larbi Ben Boudaoud was World Champion in 1999 after winning a silver medal at the 1997 Worlds. He was also European Champion in 1998 and 1999. In the 1999 World final, he defeated Turkey’s Hüseyin Özkan. In Sydney they again met in the final. Ben Boudaoud led early in the match when Özkan threw him for ippon to win the gold medal. Neither judoka was a native of the country they represented in 2000. Ben Boudaoud was born in Algeria, but had moved to France as a youth. Özkan was born in Chechnya in the Soviet Caucausus, but moved to Turkey when he was 20. His judo gold medal was the first Turkish gold medal won in a sport other than weightlifting or wrestling.
